Junior quarterback Mike Catanese connected with classmate Davy Lizana in the right corner of the end zone in the game’s final minute after Nickolas Null opened the scoring with a field goal in the first quarter, but in between the Blue Hens stifled the Big Red offense and was opportunistic against its defense. Blue Hen quarterback Pat Kehoe was just 14-of-29 passing, but was credited with 254 yards.
